“Baal-enci-aga” Literally Means “Baal The King”

This rabbit hole just keeps on getting even deeper.  Earlier today, I was contacted by two individuals that had heard about another twist on the Balenciaga controversy.  As I detailed earlier this week, extremely disturbing Balenciaga photographs that prominently feature children are causing a tremendous uproar all over the globe.  The fashion house is being accused of sexualizing children, and many consumers are swearing that they will never purchase anything from Balenciaga ever again.  In one of those photographs, there is a roll of pre-printed tape on the floor on which the name of the company has been purposely altered.  Instead of spelling it as “Balenciaga”, an extra “a” has been added so that it is spelled “Baalenciaga” instead…

That is weird, right?

And obviously someone went to a tremendous amount of effort to do this, because the name was not just scribbled on the tape with a marker.

Someone took the time to actually print “Baalenciaga” on that roll of tape, and so this was something that was definitely pre-meditated.

Who would do such a thing, and why would anyone want to purposely associate “Baal” with “Balenciaga”?

Needless to say, any reference to Baal is likely to upset a lot of Christians, because no other false ancient deity is mentioned more prominently in the Bible than Baal is.

If you are not familiar with Baal, the following is what Britannica.com has to say about him…

Baal, god worshipped in many ancient Middle Eastern communities, especially among the Canaanites, who apparently considered him a fertility deity and one of the most important gods in the pantheon. As a Semitic common noun baal (Hebrew baʿal) meant “owner” or “lord,” although it could be used more generally; for example, a baal of wings was a winged creature, and, in the plural, baalim of arrows indicated archers. Yet such fluidity in the use of the term baal did not prevent it from being attached to a god of distinct character. As such, Baal designated the universal god of fertility, and in that capacity his title was Prince, Lord of the Earth. He was also called the Lord of Rain and Dew, the two forms of moisture that were indispensable for fertile soil in Canaan. In Ugaritic and Hebrew, Baal’s epithet as the storm god was He Who Rides on the Clouds. In Phoenician he was called Baal Shamen, Lord of the Heavens.

You wouldn’t expect to see a reference to an ancient Middle Eastern deity in a photo produced by one of the most prominent fashion houses on the entire planet, but there it is.

And it has been pointed out to me that “Baalenciaga” actually means something very specific in Latin.

I had to try this for myself, and so I pulled up Google’s Latin to English translator.

Sure enough, when I typed “Baal enci aga” into the Latin box, it told me that the English translation of that phrase is “Baal the king”.
